The engineers at 510labs are the same ones that were responsible for the production ready design of the PirateEye Camera Detection System. This system was deployed around the world and reported detections to an network operations center in San Diego, CA. The device itself was comprised of a custom PoE-powered ARM Cortex A8 computer board running embedded Linux, on-board digital image processing (co-DSP), a custom 2-axis gimbal, and proprietary scientific grade camera.
Some of our most recent work has gotten the core of our team back to its roots in the design on airborne imaging systems. We have implemented a connected messaging framework based on cloud computing and distributed processing techniques to allow for a flexible and open plugin-based image collection and processing system. We reworked the customer’s existing system to allow for better gimbal control, better data integrity, better mission visibility, distributed processing capability and real-time georeferencing of data products. We have taken pride in applying the latest in networked sensor and connected interface technologies to provide new work flows to our customers.
We have participated in numerous design iterations of a complex medical device from the first prototype to the production readiness stage. 510labs developed the electronics that drive its high power LEDs, interact with other system components, read various sensors and communicate with the system software. A faster series of LED flashes and sensor reads means faster operation. Faster operation means better data and happier patients. We found that providing faster operation means happier clients, too.
We created a series of electronic modules for interfacing 3rd party devices (V1 Radar Detectors, iPods and Bluetooth Phones) to BMW, Audi and VW automobiles. These modules were designed to insert and override communication packets on the I and CAN infotainment buses. A suite of simulation software and libraries were developed to speed development and provide reusable access.
We designed a Python-based Closed Caption Server, Client and Relay system used in the design and testing of a Closed Caption Mobile Application for use by deaf theater goers. It consists of a clean-room implementation of the SMPTE 430-10:2010 Auxiliary Content Synchronization Protocol, a multi TCP connection simulation server, a local or wide area relay, and a HTML5 canvas based mobile application compatible viewer. It was tested in conjunction with the ISDCF and found to be compatible with all compliant Digital Cinema Servers.
We developed a pre-production prototype of a battery charge controller for a novel residential windmill system that was designed to generate power at the lowest possible wind speeds. We provided remotely operating logging and interface software, system firmware, buck-boost charge management and power conditioning. We also provided long term testing and production support.
